Ready to make gluten-free vanilla wafers that are better than the ones you buy in the store? I know you are.
Being gluten-free has certain challenges. Over time, they’ve become less daunting. But, there’s still the occasional hurdle in my path.
I’m not one to shy away from hurdles. Ever. I tend to have an extraordinary tolerance for pain, quite often fueled by my desire to have things done my way. I’ve never been one to take no for an answer. My husband says I’m stubborn. So did my dad.
I call it tenacious.
Regardless, it has served me well.
In the kitchen, there are certain mainstream foods that are iconic. So iconic that they’re called for by name in recipes. Think about cream of chicken soup, lady fingers, Oreo cookies, and yes, Vanilla Wafers.
For the average person, there is no challenge here. They simply pull a box from the shelf at their favorite grocery store and, presto, they have exactly what they need.
For someone on a specific diet – be that gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, egg-free, vegan – it’s not so simple. We obsessively read labels, search for creative solutions, and often go another route all together just so we can feed our families delicious foods.
And, when we really want to eat one of those iconic foods, we put on our aprons, get out our mixers, and start creating. And, yes, it mandates tenacity.
I was in one of those moods when I decided that I must have Vanilla Wafers.

Their gluten-free, refined sugar-free, GMO-free cornflakes got me through the first several months of my pregnancy when I could rarely stomach anything else. So, you can rest assured that I am sharing my honest opinion of their products.
